This was the first piece of make-up I ever bought, and it was brilliant. Considering it was the first time I ever wore make-up, I didn't want to buy something like foundation yet and just wanted to 'try it out'. But this did the job very well, and covered all of my problem areas. Was a bit expensive, but it was definitely worth the money and I would buy it again and again.
Way too thick, cakey, doesn't blend well, doesn't last, bad color selection. Was not impressed at all with this. It's hard to tell if it's full coverage because of it being so cakey and thick. Not ideal for active blemishes because of its thickness. It cakes around pimples, etc.
Not the best concealer out there
Not good for undereye circles bc it settles into fine lines
I noticed that in pictures of me with a flash, I was able to see the concealer spots so that was embarassing
I gave mine away since I barely used it
I'm very light skinned and it's very difficult to find a shade that matches perfectly. This one does! It is a thick formula, but it's a paste and is meant for just dabbing or blotting on the problem areas. If you put a lot it does sometimes appear cakey. It looks best if you already have foundation on, it's not for if you wear a bare face and just want a little coverage. Overall I love this product for my skin.
This product does exactly what it says its supposed to. I'm still not sure how I feel about the thick formulation of this product though. I only use this when there is something I really want to conceal, but I don't really recommend it for every day use due to the fact that anything that isnt applied with a light hand is going to appear cakey and thick.

I read in a magazine that Benefit's Erase Paste was a really good concealer. (I really needed a concealer to hide my cystic acne after using the Merlot peel off mask and Queen Helene mask too often. Prior to that, I rarely ever used makeup to hide uneven skin tones.) When I went to try it at Sephora I thought it was way too thick. After looking next to the Erase Paste, I saw the Boi-ing and quickly sampled it. I purchased two of these and thought it was decent. The concealer itself was okay but it didn't last and accentuated further my cystic acne and dry skin (I was using a strong acne treatment to get rid of zits causing my skin to be red, irritated and dry with flaky skin.) Now that my cystic acne is gone, I would reconsider buying this again.
It does what it's supposed to do.
I have two shades of this concealer which came in the Benefit Look The Best At Everything kit. I dab 01 on my undereye circles and then mix a bit of 01 and 02 to cover any problem areas that I have. It's a nice concealer but I find that it has a dryer texture. I also would make sure you set it with a powder, my undereye circles were still noticable without any powder on because they were a smidge lighter than the rest of my face.
Works like a charm!
I got this in a color 4 and 5, the 5 is a very good match for my skin tone. I use the 4 to highlight and as an eye shadow base.
The consistency is very smooth, it's thick so you can start with a very little amount and build it up as needed. This is one of the few concealers that totally covers my under eye circles and dark spots on the first application.
It lasts for about 3 hours without creasing if I don't use a powder on top. With a powder, it lasts all day long.
My only complaint is that I would prefer a hinged lid rather than the screw top.
Great little product at a surprisingly fair price.
I read a lot of good reviews about this stuff so when I bought it I had high expectations, but sadly it was not the case for me. I'll admit that it did cover the dark circles under my eyes to make me look more awake, but it left creases not long after I applied it. I don't really use it to cover up blemishes because it's a little too light for my skin. I feel like it's a total waste of my money so I would probably never buy this again.
Love and hate relationship
I found this concealer great for light blemishes and also allowing my eyes to look brighter by applying it under my eyes. I own this product in Light and it doesn't really cover my darker blemishes all that well. However, I do not have many blemishes to conceal that my foundation won't already cover, so this concealer has lasted me for a year now and I still have quite a bit left over. I find that you can apply a little or even a lot and will still blend nicely under liquid foundation.
I cannot say that I will purchase this product again.
